Responding to new figures released today showing unemployment up 14,000 and employment down 20,000, Scottish Liberal Democrat economy spokesperson Councillor Carolyn Caddick said:

"These figures are truly horrible. Lost jobs are affecting tens of thousands of people.

"The overall measures are now worse than for the UK as a whole. All the previous boasts of Scottish ministers have come undone.

"We need the Scottish Government to focus on investment in people through education and mental health in order to boost productivity."
